Holiday shopping season has been upon us for several weeks. While you’re wrapping up your shopping routine (and wrapping those gifts), take a minute to think about the waste generated this holiday season; all of the wrapping paper, Christmas trees and product packaging has to go somewhere.
Every little bit helps. Consider having a gift exchange at work or at your next party. Make a gift for your friends – it’s fun, artistic and unique. Or recycle old and gently used clothing by swapping them with your friends and family. It’s a great way to save some cash while helping curb greenhouse gases, diverting some waste from ending up in a landfill.
What are some other ways we can make this holiday season a little more green? Take another look at your holiday activities and purchases; can you be any greener? USAgain wishes you a Happy – and green– Holiday!
